Public Relations


The JCSS Public Relations Department is responsible for informing the public regarding our school system by sharing content about our students, faculty, staff and schools. The Public Relations Department handles all internal and external communication support for all schools and Central Office departments. 

The Jackson County School System values transparent and honest communication that prioritizes our students, staff and school community. The Public Relations Department builds positive relationships with students, parents, employees, and the local community - including members of the press and government officials. 

The Public Relations Department distributes District Features, press releases, podcasts and videos to share the message of the Jackson County School System, while managing social media accounts and district, school websites. The Public Relations Department is also responsible for improving system and school communication to stakeholders along with boosting communication efforts amongst internal departments and staff. 

All media inquiries into the Jackson County School System, District Office and all 12 of its district schools, should be made through the Public Relations Department by calling 706-224-5928 or sending an email to ehooper@jcss.us.

The Jackson County School System Public Relations Department was recognized by the National School Public Relations Association in the summer of 2024, earning a Publications and Digital Media Excellence Award for the system's Annual Report, Excellence in Writing and for the JCSS website.
